As a kid I was big fan of The Beano which my Dad would bring home from work, often I could tell he’d already had a read. Dennis the Menace was one of my favourite characters in the comic, along with Minnie the Minx.
The Brewers Fayre
have chosen Dennis the Menace as the theme for their play areas at their pub restaurants and we were invited along to the one in Great Park, Rednal to see.
The play area was not huge but it was big enough to keep my three children, aged 9, 8 and 4 years entertained for a good hour. They only came out for drinks. There were a lot of other children there but it wasn’t too overcrowded. My 9 year old has sensory issues and also has joint problems so we do tend to avoid soft play areas, or only spend a short time there as she gets frustrated. However, she seemed quite happy to play here and we are certain we will be visiting again. At just £3 per child for 90 minutes it’s pretty good value.
The Little Man had his photo taken with Dennis the Menace.
The play area has been newly refurbished and although we’d not visited before there was a lady there that I spoke to who said it was much better now.
After playing we had lunch in the restaurant.
While waiting for our food the kids had fun with the activity books and crayons provided. I love that restaurants do this. Not so long ago I remember carrying around my own books and pens to keep kids occupied, they just don’t understand that they have to sit and wait for their food. The time goes quickly if they are occupied.
The kids all chose pizza, I had a really delicious chicken tikka masala and the OH had sausage, egg, chips and beans.
For dessert, two of the kids had ice cream, one had a brownie with ice cream. I had apple pie with caramel and custard and the OH had Chocolate fudge cake with ice cream.
The kids meals are £3.99 for a main meal, £4.49 for two courses and £4.99 for three courses.
The adults meals vary in prices and there are often deals to be had when purchasing more than one meal. For example, you can get two main meals for £10, and two desserts for £2.50 between 12-5pm Monday to Friday.
We had a lovely time, the staff were very helpful and cheerful, it makes a difference when you get service with a smile. We will definitely be returning to this Brewers Fayre.
